Frog Bog livision

Frog Bog was one of several games ftured in the recent cult classic Grandma's Boy. It's sy to see why: the definitely has a retro penchant, and an livision game is perfect for the 's comedic vibe.

Supposedly this game is a remake of Frogs and Flies for the Atari 2600, but for some rson I just like Frog Bog better. The graphics are definitely improved, but I enjoy the controls on the livision, oddly enough, better than on the Atari.

In the , a younger gamer challenges pro-taganist Alex to a game of Frog Bog, and its the perfect choice for multiplayer action. The game test reflexes, timing, and prediction of parabolas (mental calculus) to the extreme. Your competition is the only rl difficulty setting, because the computer is laughably sy. Both players jump around ching flies for three minutes, flies are worth different amounts of points, and the player with the most points after three minutes wins the game.

There are several different control options. A fixed arc across the lilypads serves as the sy setting. I prefer medium, in which you have to plan your jumps more carefully by holding down the button to determine velocity; this setting also allows you to choose between low hops and high hops. This also allows the players to fall off the lilypads, and this is grt because it only penalizes you by taking a little time to swim back up to the lilypad. Its both rlistic (i.e. frogs shouldn't die when they touch the ddly water) and fair. Players won't be discouraged from taking risks, and an agressive strategy is the only way to victory.

As you play, the pond shifts slowly into nighttime--a nice graphical touch, and one that provides the game with some extra charm. The game was included in the PC, PS2, and DS versions of livision Lives! On the DS you can play single-cart multiplayer with a friend of stranger. It's a game you can challenge anyone to, anytime-- to the dth or for money.
